Statement of the Nordic Bishops' Conference on the conflict in Jerusalem

Die Nordische Bischofskonferenz hat auf ihrer Vollversammlung im finnischen Turku eine Erklärung zum derzeitigen Konflikt in Jerusalem herausgegeben.

 We, the heads of the Catholic Churches in Denmark, Finland, Island, Norway and Sweden, support the recent ecumenical Statement of the heads of the Churches in the Holy Land «concerning the systematic campaign against the Churches and the Christian community, in flagrant violation of the existing Status Quo».

We encourage our governments to commit themselves to oppose all discrimination. We ask our ecclesial communities to encourage their members to pray and to take action that can promote a just peace for all.
